RE: Managing developers recommendations

Unfortunately I don't have much choice.  If management tells me that
person A, B, and C need read-only access to production tables to
periodically review a sample of data for accuracy, I've got to do it.
If the production team tells me that x number of support folks need
read-only access to production tables to be able to resolve production
issues, I've got to do it.  In both cases, they use TOAD and I observe
the periodic full scanning of large tables.

Why does QA have access to your production DB?  Our production DB
is so tight, that only way to connect is from the application server or
if you are login into the DB server which requires an account.  No
desktops
or any other servers can connect to it.  You have to think about
security
of such a lose access to DB servers, not to mention user errors and
performance impacts.
